How to insert global (not last changed) revision number into code?

Okay, I've got another good question (I think):

I'd like to insert the last checked-out revision number (that returned
by svn status -u) as a string into a piece of code. So what I'd like
to do is have

// version.h

const string REVISION_NUMBER = "$GlobalRev$"
const string REVISION_LOCAL="$GlobalLocal$"

Where global rev get's expanded to the latest global revision number
when I checkout the code. Also the local is important (whether I'm on
a trunk or a branch). So the expanded file might look like:

// version.h

const string REVISION_NUMBER="12452"
const string

Any ideas on what would be the best way to do this ?
